I live in Rio and I can say this: Pestana Rio is a very nice hotel in Copacabana Beach. But it is expensive compared to good hotels overseas.
I have found the same or better service and rooms in 4 stars hotels around Europe and The US. The 5 stars are probably because of the Spa and the Superior Rooms. But for me, a 5 Star hotel should be so to every room. I stayed at a Deluxe Room that's good. But not memorable.
To those who have never been to Rio:
LOCATION: the most appreciated quarters in Rio (for people from Rio) are Leblon, Ipanema and Arpoador. Pestana is at Copacabana Beach: the oldest beach in town and the most visited by tourists. It's near every place you want to visit. In 10 minutes or less by Car, you can enjoy Lapa, Ipanema, Leblon,Arpoador, Lagoa and the Sightseens.
BEACH: Copacabana is the city's oldest quarter. If you're young and want to see younger people, take a taxi and in 5-10 minutes you can enjoy Ipanema beach by day and Lapa by night.
ROOM: clean and modern. The bed could be more confortable. The wi-fi works ok. TV has few internacional channels.
SERVICE: Brazil is a nightmare when it comes to service. I'm brazilian, have always lived in Rio and I can say this: Do not expect excepcional service. To brazilians, if there's no big problem, the service is good. Pestana is good. No problems so far...
